ICYMI, Fortnite has been removed from both Apple's App Store and the Google Play Store (opens in new tab), after Epic introduced its own direct payment system in the game.
Because of the game's removal, Epic has filed for legal action against Apple and Google, with court documents for the Apple case released by Epic, with the BBC confirming they have seen the Google court documents.
This has come about after Fortnite introduced the "Epic direct payment" option. On mobile, it offers players discounted prices on V-Bucks, in exchange for circumventing the service charge that the App Store and Google Play normally take on each in-app purchase. Apple later confirmed that Fortnite's removal was a direct result of the new payment option in a press statement.
There's a lot to get excited about in gaming this year. Here are the upcoming games of 2020 (opens in new tab) we really just can't wait for.
